Heart Attack Feelings


English: A large bruise resulting from a fall

I am very upset. I am trying to slow down my breathing. I am trying to stop the first tear from falling. I am so much at the end of my rope I think I have to ask for an extension.

I took Al to his appointment this morning. I didn’t realize how weak I had become.I felt like an old. old woman. I could barely pick that wheelchair up and put it in and take it out of the car, let alone three times just today.  We took his wheelchair because I knew he could not make it that long walking. I had never seen Al like he was the entire day. He would be talking and then his mouth would be in motion of speaking but when I looked at him he was fast asleep. Then he would wake again. The doctor suggested a way to help Al drink better. He said he saw it on a movie and one of his PD patients now uses it. It is a helmet that has two cup holders. Straws connect from the cups and sit at an angle of his lips. All he would have to would be to turn his head a tiny bit and he could drink and he would not suck the straw down his throat. I thought I am going to hunt this helmet down somehow and get it. Hopefully it isn’t too expensive.

While we were there the doc said there was nothing else to be done for Al. Just as we were getting ready to leave we noticed half of Al’s fingernails were dark gray. The doc said to go across the street to Al’s heart doctor and let them know about the chest pains and the nail beds.

The heart doc wasn’t in. She was actually at the hospital working on a patient. The cardio nurse suggested we take Al to the ER. When we got him in his room and they took his shirt off I was aghast at the huge bruises on his chest.They were on his arms and chest. One was around his nipple area and it was the size of a peach.

Immediately the staff questioned me about the bruises. I told them that the facility had called me a little over a week ago and said he had some small bruises and that he had fallen through the  night. I remember that so well because I talked my head off to Al about getting up during the night without help. He swore and cried to me that he didn’t fall. He had gotten up but didn’t fall.

I had decided then that Al just must have forgotten due to his Parkinson’s Dementia. Now the staff at the ER was concerned on the number of bruises and the size. I had not seen Al with his shirt off since the fall so like I said I was shocked.

With Al’s congested heart failure and angina they ran special tests. They came back alright but the x-ray they took showed something brand new to me. While they were letting the doctor read the tests I would watch the heart monitor go nuts. His heart rate would go from 65 to 220 to 50 to 260 back to 50. It was all over the place. The heart monitor kept sounding like a tornado drill. I can tell you I was scared to death for Al.

In the end the news I learned was something I was not familiar with. Al’s PD has not only entered the muscles of the arms and legs that I can see; it has entered the chest cavity. It has attacked the lining of the chest walls and the rib cage and is now tremoring. So now this PD has entered his heart, his chest cavity and his eyes internally. This is what is causing all of Al’s chest and rib  pains.

They said there was nothing they could really do as it was part of the PD. They said he had a bad case of PD. I have heard that said before. I knew that Al had said when I picked him up this morning that both of his ribs were hurting. I thought maybe he had fallen before but evidently not. It is the tremors. Imagine coughing over and over and not stopping, the nurse said. This is what the tremors are doing inside his chest cavity. But the heart monitor is picking up ever tremor. This is why the heart rate is going whacky.  You just can’t see it with the naked eye.

Long term, this could hurt Al’s heart as it isn’t in great condition. The doctor suggested Al take it easy on the walking again. This causes tremors to act up more than usual.

I took Al back to the facility and got him laying on his bed. He was very tired. The nurse came in to grab the charts from me and I told her I wanted to speak to her. I don’t know what she took that to mean but when I walked back out in to the hall that nurse was telling a  CNA that Al’s sister was demanding to talk to her and from now on she was not going into Al’s room alone. I waited for the Head of Nurses to come and we three went into a private room.

The first thing I said was ,” I don’t appreciate you telling a CNA my brother’s business right in the middle of the hall. It is not her concern and if I can hear everything you are saying I am sure others can hear also. She told me she was not going into his room alone anymore, and I asked, “Why is he sexual towards you?” She laughed and said no and I said ” then are you afraid of him? she said, he gets confused about things. OK, I thought.

I told the two of them what I had learned at the doc’s office and ER. I told them that we need to back off the walker again and try  using it at one meal time and if he doesn’t hurt from that try adding another meal.

Al always tells me that it hurts to walk and I do understand this but he says some staff tell him he needs to walk. It is good for him. I told the two nurses,” I don’t know what else to do to get it made so plain and clear. You are not to push him to walk. You all push him and tell him he can do it and now he is paying the price of worsened tremors causing chest pains that feel like heart attacks. I want it stopped now!”

They both looked at me and then the charge nurse spoke. ” Do you want us to take his walker away?” I almost lost it then. What does it take to get it across it is according to Al’s pain, a good day or bad day, that determines his walking or using a wheelchair. They don’t get it. They want him to walk everywhere he goes now that the pain patch is working. I want him to walk but not over do it. Shoot maybe I can’t even get my point across to anyone. Do any of you understand what I am saying?

It isn’t routine, it is PD for heaven sakes. There is no schedule. It all surrounds on whether he is in pain or not. I just don’t know what else to do anymore. It is like no one gets it. How much easier would this be if he was just an elderly person waiting to die sitting in a nursing home……………….

  2. Oh Terry, how dreadful it all is. I am so sorry to read of this complication.

    You made it very clear here what you wanted for Al – walk when he is able, basically; and don’t push it – so I can only think they are not listening to you.

    You both remain in my prayers.

  3. The nurses are not emotionally involved in the situation and they just see your brother as another “case”. Therefore they will do the best for him but they will push aside on how you feel and they may feel. This saves them from carrying all the emotional mess when they go back at home. Ethic or not, this is the reality. Sending you much love and positive energy.

  4. As I’ve mentioned to you before, I am a long-term care (LTC) ombudsman/advocate for vulnerable adults living in LTC facilities in my state. I just did some research for you to make it easier for you to find help for your brother. One of your articles indicated that you live in Warsaw, Indiana. The state long-term care ombudsman office is located in Indianapolis. Additionally, there are NUMEROUS regional programs so I’m certain there will be one that can serve you in Kosciusko County. Please, Terry, contact the ombudsman program – you are a wonderful advocate for your brother but the State needs to step in and pull the strings that they have – but you don’t. First thing tomorrow, please call their number: 1-800-622-4484. Let them know where you live, and that you are concerned about the care your brother is receiving at his facility. If you get a recording, leave contact information for them to call you and indicate that you need them to contact you as soon as possible regarding several concerns that you have about your brother’s facility.
    Lots of times, family members hesitate to contact the LTC Ombudsman because they fear their loved one will be retaliated against. Ask yourself this question – isn’t Al being mistreated already? And if they mistreat him, how many other patients are being mistreated? Standing up for your brother will also be standing up for the remainder of the patients. I promise you, once you’ve made the call and have someone with clout on your brother’s side, your burden will start to lift.

The good news is that once the ombudsman program is on board – the staff will be on notice and they’d be crazy, stupid, etc. to make any trouble. They’re already in trouble to be sure. I’m glad you’ll call. I really don’t think you’ll regret it.

  5. Maybe it is time for you to kick, scream and yell! Evidently they are not hearing you and just don’t give a damn!! Yes I said Damn. I am so angry for you and Al right now. What is it going to take for them to understand Als needs are different than someone with aging problems only ? Terry uou need to get on the phone to the owner of that facility , to the social worker etc and demand and I mean demand that Al be given someone that understands his PD or a immediate placement in a facility that is staffed and equipped for the needs of a PD patient. If this continues as is I have no doubt and forgive me for saying this but his death will come sooner than necessary. In fact I believe I would tell the Social worker that should he have an early demise due to the negligent care (that is what it is when they are not providing for his needs) then you will my allmeans bring a wrongful death suit against them. I wish Ilived closer I would be right there with you and helping you to fight, although I know you are strong and fight like a momma bear for her cub!

  7. I’m so sorry you and Al are going through this, Terry, but hopefully, as you stand up for Al, it will also help the staff in caring for others with PD. We didn’t have such serious issues at the facility where I worked. Our staff was much more caring and most love their residents. In fact, that’s where my mother lived for her last couple of years, because the care was so good, and the Lord made a way for her to live there.

    Having said that, my suggestion is to follow up your meeting today with a letter to the facility’s Director of Nurses and the Executive Director as well, detailing what you told them today. It would also be excellent if you would contact Al’s doctor, and have him send them written orders regarding Al’s use of the walker, and anything else that he recommends. The facility’s nurses, CNA’s and other caregivers are required to follow physician’s orders.

    I would also push them to require Al’s caregivers to take part in some kind of training for caring for residents with PD. I sure hope these suggestions help you and Al, and I will continue to lift you both up in prayer.

    God bless you Terry, for the great love you have for your brother. The Lord chose you to care for Al, because He knew that you alone would care enough and be willing and able to follow through with this. What a privilege to be chosen by God to care for your brother!

    Much love to you,

    • In order for him to come home he needs to remain there until the decision is final for his waiver. I don’t want to put him in anymore nursing homes. they are for the regular elderly people, not ones with PD at least around here. I could move, this is an option but I don’t have enough money to do so. The moving trucks are so expensive. As far as the wheelchair I need to get those muscles back to working again

  13. Terry you don’t have any other siblings right? How old are your children and ho far do they live from you? Do you have a church family locally? My friend you are going to need some support. You are going to need someone you can cry with and vent with.

    My first reaction when I read about the bruises was like the nurses. Somebody(the facility) has been abusing this man. Immediate anger. Then I read about the heart monitor and remembered that nurse earlier telling you how she was equipped to handle Als chest pains. I asked you if they had an EKG that would have picked up the radical change in the rhythm. How are they equipped and why didn’t THEY know?

    About his walking. Terry this is where you are going to need the support. Don’t worry about his walking. If he is having a good day that is probably due to not walking. So if he walks then either that day or the next he will have pain. You see it’s a cycle and at this stage of the disease his comfort is the most important thing.

    I’m afraid if PD is in the chest cavity that you may be near the end stage and Terry I’m telling you this because it doesn’t seem like anyone else will. Honey make him as comfortable and as happy as you can and prepare yourself , if you haven’t already , to let Al go. And know this. It will be a glorious day for Al because he will go to sleep here and wake cradled in the arms of Jesus Christ. He will have no ailments Parkinson’s will be gone .His challenges will be overcome and he will be waiting for you laughing and dancing.

    • this makes me so teary eyed. Not from what you said, but because I have already guess it. He has heart problems. With his chest cavity being filled with PD it is a matter of time. PD had already entered the outer layer of his heart last year. I have one son who lives close to me. We don’t speak much about Al. My other son and daughter live farther a way. We have no family really left anymore. I am and have been the sole caregiver for Al. When the nurse said he didn’t have a heart attack this time, I got the hint. When she said be thankful it isn’t his heart acting up it is the tremors, it bothered me because indirectly it is affecting the heart. I didn’t even know the PD could get inside the chest walls

Pick up a sack of burgers or make some sandwiches and eat outside…and take lots of pictures Terry , lots of pictures. This may go on for 6 months a year , nobody really knows so enjoy all of it that you and he can. You and AL…mainly you Terry because Al is going to be fine…he is going to be better than he has ever been in his life…y’all are in my thoughts and my prayers.

  21. How I wish I were well enough at this very moment to travel to where you are and assist in finding you the advocacy that perhaps would help you in getting the absolute best care for your brother and in turn relieve the tremendous pain and suffering both you and your brother are going through. The run around you are getting is inexcusable. Additionally, discussing your brother’s health anyplace other than in private is a violation of his HIPPA rights. The facility is opening itself up to federal violations and you have a right to report them at any time. Don’t be shy. You are doing everything possible to protect your brother. Those of us that are caregivers are tired and worn down and it takes every bit of our strength to survive. The law is on your side, the next time you are at the hospital, ask the patient advocate to get involved. That’s what they get paid for. We have far too many patients and their families falling through the cracks in today’s health care situation. I don’t want you and your brother to be one of them. Without knowing the age of your brother, you might also want to contact The Council on Aging in your county. They often provide terrific advocacy.

      • Terry – I somehow missed what state you are in. If your brother is receiving Social Security Disability or SSI most states now have programs wherein a patient may be moved home and the state pays for a full time caregiver. It can be either a family member or someone the family elects. It also provides a respite for whoever the caregiver is so they might get away to regroup and take care of themselves. I was able to set this program in place for my father – I lived in another state and had to take time away from my profession and go home for 3 months but it was so well worth it. Dad was not bed-ridden but he had a serious blood disease after chemo and there were many things he could no longer do. We actually had the caregiver 7 years before Dad passed. It was such a relief for me to know Dad was taken care of properly and each time I went home to visit, things were being taken care of properly. Dad was a real pistol and still carried on doing many things for himself, but other times he absolutely had to have the 24 hour care. The state of Kansas considered his having the care in the home more cost effective than having him in and out of the hospital and in and out of an assisted living environment. You might want to check to see if your state has such a program. I learned about the one in Kansas via talking to lots and lots of people that had loved ones still at home and I knew they had assistance but didn’t know how they were pulling it off.

The paper work has all been turned in. We are waiting for a level of care to be determined right now. It has been three weeks and no word as of yet. This program will entitle paid care up to 40 hours a week here at home plus he will be able to be transported back and forth to an Adult Day Program M-F. He needs to socialize. The facility told me about two weeks after they took all of his money that he doesn’t really fit in there. He just wants to talk all the time and they don’t have time for that

  23. I almost felt like crying with frustration at reading this post Terry.
    Why DO medical staff treat all patients with similar health conditions the same. Everyone is unique and needs appropriate assessment and treatment (let alone nurses ordering patients to do what they are told).
    If it’s one thing I learnt when studying Herbal Medicine, Aromatherapy and Massage. A hundred patients with exactly the same diagnosis, age & lifestyle may each need a different treatment.
    Every time I’ve had surgery, orthodox or alternative therapies, I demand and expect the appropriate treatment for my individual situation. The worst situation was when I had back surgery and they gave me a strong analgesic which caused flashing lights and my brain to explode (so it felt). Despite my complaints they gave me that same drug a second time (with even worse results). I’ve since found out I am allergic to Morphine.
    Sometimes I feel the ‘trained’ staff shouldn’t be allowed to practice without doing a full years training on ‘how to listen’ to their patients.
    I’m re-reading a book call Medicine & Compassion at the moment. It’s a Tibetan Lama’s Guidance for Caregivers. It should be compulsory reading for all health care professionals. It is co-written with an American MD.

    • I agree with you. So many times I have said the same thing. Medical staffing need to go back to when they were being trained and focus once again the reason for this line of work. Compassion, listening, and knowledge are the requirements to be a nurse or a doctor. It is not only about the pay check but giving a part of their heart to each patient, whether rich or poor. Thank you for your comment. It means a lot to me
